DON'T Donít walk too close Donít breathe so soft Donít talk so sweet Donít sing Donít lay oh so near Please donít let me fall in love with you again Please let me forget all those sweet smiles All of the passion All of the heat, the peace, the pain And all those blue skies Where your words were my freedom Please donít let me fall in love with you again To many times Iíve cared too much I stood on the edge And I saw that you held my hand And knowing too well I couldnít hide from those eyes Please donít let me fall in love with you again FOOLISH GAMES You took your coat off Stood in the rain You were always crazy like that And I watched from my window Always felt I was outside, looking in on you You were always the mysterious one With dark eyes and careless hair You were fashionably sensitive but too cool to care You stood in my doorway With nothing to say Besides some comment on the weather In case you failed to notice In case you failed to see This is my heart bleeding before you This is me down on my knees And these foolish games are tearing me apart And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart Youíre breaking my heart You were always brilliant in the morning Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you You loved Mozart And youíd speak of your loved ones As I clumsily strummed my guitar You teach me of honest things Things that were daring, things that were clean Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean So I hid my soiled hands behind my back Somewhere along the line I must have gone off track with you Excuse me, think I mistaken you for somebody else Somebody who gave a damn, somebody more like myself And these foolish games are tearing me, youíre tearing me, youíre tearing me apart. And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart Youíre breaking my heart You took your coat off and stood in the rain. You were always crazy like that. I'M SENSITIVE I was thinking that I might fly today Just to disprove all the things that you say It doesnít take a talent to be mean Your words can crush things that are unseen So please be careful with me Iím sensitive and Iíd like to stay that way You always tell me that itís impossible To be respected and be a girl Whyís it gotta be so complicated Why you gotta tell me if Iím hated Oh, please be careful with me Iím sensitive and Iíd like to stay that way I was thinking that it might do some good If we robbed the cynics and took all their food That way what they believe will have taken place And weíll give it to everybody who has some faith Oh, please be careful with me Iím sensitive and Iíd like to stay that way I have this theory That if weíre told weíre bad Then thatís the only idea weíll ever have But maybe if we are surrounded in beauty Someday we will become what we see Cause anyone can start a conflict Itís harder yet to disregard it Iíd rather see the world from another angle We are everyday angels Be careful with me cause Iíd like to stay that way NEAR YOU ALWAYS Please donít say ĎI love youí Those words touch me much too deeply They make my core tremble Donít think you realize the power you have over me And please donít come so close It just makes me want to make you near me always Please donít kiss me so sweet It makes me crave a thousand kisses to follow Please donít touch me like that Makes every other embrace seem pale and shallow And please donít look at me like that It just makes me want to make you near me always Please donít bring me flowers They only whisper the sweet things youíd say Donít try to understand me Your hands already know too much anyway It just make me want to make you near me always And when you look in my eyes Please know my heart is in your hands Itís nothing that I understand But when in your arms you have complete power over me So be gentle if you please Cause your hands are in my hair But my heart is in your teeth baby And it make me want to make you near me always I want to be near you always, I want to be near you always I want to be near you always PIECES OF YOU Sheís an ugly girl Does it make you want to kill her? Sheís an ugly girl Do you want to kick in her face? Sheís an ugly girl She doesnít pose a threat Sheís an ugly girl Does that make you feel safe? Ugly girl, ugly girl Do you hate her cause sheís pieces of you? Sheís a pretty girl Does it make you think nasty thoughts? Sheís a pretty girl Do you want to tie her down? Sheís a pretty girl Do you call her a bitch? Sheís a pretty girl Did she sleep with your whole town? Pretty girl, pretty girl Do you hate her cause sheís pieces of you? You say heís a faggot Does it make you want to hurt him? You say heís a faggot Do you want to bash in his brain? You say heís a faggot Does he make you sick to your stomach? You say heís a faggot Are you afraid youíre just the same? Faggot, faggot Do you hate him cause heís pieces of you? You say heís a Jew Does that mean that heís tight? You say heís a Jew Do you want to hurt his kids tonight? You say heís a Jew Heíll never wear that funny hat again You say heís a Jew As though being born were a sin Oh Jew, oh Jew Do you hate him cause heís pieces of you? WHO WILL SAVE YOUR SOUL People living their lives for you on TV They say theyíre better than you and you agree Another doctorís bill, another lawyerís bill Another cute cheap thrill You know you love him if you put him in your will Who will save your soul When it comes to the flower now Who will save your soul After all the lies that you told, boy Who will save your soul if you wonít save your own We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue Another day, another dollar, another war, another tower Went up where the homeless had their homes So we pray to as many different gods as there are flowers But we call religion our friend Weíre so worried about saving our souls Afraid that God will take his toll That we forget to begin but CHORUS Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill You got social security, but that wonít pay your bills There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay So you bargain with the devil, say youíre O.K. for today You say that you love them, take their money and run Say itís been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things Those flings, those strings you got to cut So get out on the streets, girls, and bust your butts CHORUS YOU WERE MEANT FOR ME I hear the clock, itís 6 a.m. I feel so far from where Iíve been Got my eggs and my pancakes too Got my maple syrup, everything but you Break the yolks and make a smiley face I kinda like it in my brand new place I wipe the spots off of the mirror Donít leave the keys in the door Never put wet towel on the floor anymore cause Dreams last so long Even after youíre gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you Called my momma, she was out for a walk Consoled a cup of coffee, but it didnít wanna talk So I picked up a paper, it was more bad news More hearts being broken or people being used Put on my coat in the pouring rain Saw a movie it just wasnít the same Cause it was happy and I was sad And it made me miss you oh so bad cause CHORUS Go about my business, Iím doing fine Besides, what would I say if I had you on the line Same old story not much to say Hearts are broken everyday Brush my teeth, I put the cap back on I know you hate it when I leave the light on I pick a book up and turn the sheets down And take a deep breath and a good look around Put on my pjís and hop into bed Iím half alive but I feel mostly dead I try and tell myself itíll be alright I shouldnít think anymore tonight CHORUS
